A well-known solicitor who had been in critical condition with coronavirus has been clapped by healthcare workers as he left intensive care.

Niall Murphy, 43, gave the thumbs up in video footage of him being wheeled from ICU.

The married father-of-three from Belfast has been involved in many high-profile criminal trials and civil court cases, often representing victims of the Troubles.

Mr Murphy is also a keen gaelic games enthusiast.

Antrim GAA tweeted on Friday night:

โ€œGreat to see Niall Murphy is out of ICU. All the prayers are working.โ€

Sinn Fein Assembly member Gerry Kelly tweeted the video.

โ€œGo Niall go!โ€ he posted.
